is from the united states when they have killed the highest official, the person who represents our country, in that country? >> well, without some intelligence, the united states has no idea who it is. i am told that the libyan government, such as it is, has promised the white house that it will assist in gathering the intelligence necessary to identify these people. but whether they will, or they won't, whether they can or they can't is something else again. remember that the government of libya has a domestic support among other people, radical islamists and other crazies and it's going to be extremely difficult for them to cooperate too much with the united states because they're on shaky ground. >> are we leaving everything up to the libyan government to search? i mean, you would think -- >> no. i mean we have the capability of using overhead assets, satellites -- >> drones? >> and some intelligence on the ground, too. but we are not very well situated in libya to try and get human intelligence, and at the end of the day, it's human intelligence that really drives the effort to

this is that the original stevensons--there were seven brothers, who came to the united states in the 18th century so when they multiply, then you have legions and legions of stevensons who live all across the country now. c-span: where did they come from? >> guest: well, they came originally from scotland, from the lowlands in scotland and life got pretty dour and tough over there so then they went to scotland--excuse me, to ireland, and they're part of this big migration that comes to the united states in the 18th century; comes into pennsylvania and then works its way by means of the great philadelphia road down into the south. and each generation moves on. i mean, this is a really american story, this scots-irish migration. and then these people in turn populate areas of the south. and in a critical decision for the stevensons when they were living in kentucky, they chose to move into the free state of illinois. and, of course, their family history would have been entirely different had they stayed in the south, or even gone farther west into slave-holding states. c-span: what are we seeing right here
